On the Eleventh Day of Christmas, Velvet Rider brought to me... a giveaway from @drapertherapies

Enter to win 2 pairs of Recovery Wraps from Draper Therapies!  These wraps offer a therapeutic bandage for horses to be used in conjunction with standing bandages. They can be used after surgery, injuries or for combating arthritic conditions.  The important part of these is the Celliant fiber. Celliant's oxygen studies were done independently by three separate doctors and all tests came to the same conclusion, that Celliant increases tissue oxygen levels which has been shown to increase performance, relieve pain and improve muscle recovery.  Who wouldn't want to help their horse in the best way possible?  I have a pair of these and they are really nice!  Anything from Draper Therapies is worth getting! http://www.velvetrider.com/?p=4454 #vr12days #equestriangift #equestrianholiday #horsewear #drapertherapies
